About us

The Côte D’Azur Film Commission is a real partner for all your TV and film projects on the Côte d’Azur from Menton to Théoule-sur-Mer.

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Nice Côte d’Azur initiated the creation of the Côte d’Azur Film Commission in 1999, alongside 4 founding cities: Antibes, Cannes, Grasse et Menton. This initiative aimed to contribute to a real economic dynamic in favor of the development of the film industry in the Alpes-Maritimes department.

Since 2007, the Côte d'Azur Film Commission has obtained its associative status under the 1901 law, recognized as being of general interest.

It currently has 33 members:

The Conseil Departmental des Alpes-Maritimes, the Communauté de Communes Alpes d’Azur, the Communauté d’Agglomération de la Riviera Française along with the cities of Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Beausoleil, Bouyon, Briançonnet, Cabris, la Colle-sur-Loup, Gréolières, Lucéram, Mandelieu-La Napoule, Mougins, Nice, Rimplas, Roquebrune Cap-Martin, Saint-Etienne de Tinée – Auron, Saint-Martin Vésubie, Saint-Paul de Vence, Saint Vallier-De-Thiey, Théoule-sur-Mer, La Tour-sur-Tinée, Tournefort, Tourrettes-sur-Loup, Valbonne, Vence, Villefranche-sur-Mer and Villeneuve-Loubet.

The Film Commission’s President is Frank Chikli, deputy mayor, the Vice-President is Charles Galbois, vice-president of Tourism at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Nice Côte d’Azur and its treasurer is Thérèse Dartois, Villeneuve-Loubet deputy mayor.

The Côte d’Azur Film Commission  is a member of the Film Commission network of Film France CNC and works closely with the South Region Film Commission.

Our missions

The Film Commission simplifies the organization of your filming whatever the format (feature film, short film, series, documentary, commercial films, etc.). It offers tailor-made, free information and assistance to professionals in the film and tv industry at each stage of their project (development, production, post-production), based on its expertise and knowledge of local resources.

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry

The Chamber and Audiovisual industry, at the intersection of art, business, and technology, is a growing sector that provides employment opportunities […] These multi-sector companies operating at the intersection of art, digital, and cinema in service of the image form a virtuous ecosystem, a dynamic local fabric that has strengthened over the years. They demonstrate high-quality, diverse, and complementary expertise.

Jean Pierre Savarino, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industrie Nice Côte d’Azur

The CCI Nice Côte d’Azur, a founding member of the Film Commission, guides its strategy and contributes to its efforts in the area of film promotion and production assistance.

To continue benefiting from this effect, our observation is that two levers are thus inseparable :

  • The work of promoting and accommodating film productions, and its optimization.

  • The structuring of a local ecosystem that allows local expertise and skills to operate within a value chain. This also includes collaboration with other professional sectors. In this regard, collaboration between professionals in the fields of film and tourism is essential.

All cinema-related and, more broadly, media, transmedia, and image-related skills are present in the Alpes Maritimes region.
